When Diana Marua was unveiled as a rapper a week ago, Willy Paul was among those who mocked the mother of two.
The controversial hitmaker took a swipe at Marua and her husband Bahati, accusing them of traumatising Kenyans with bad music.
“Tired of listening to bad music from that family? The family of manduru na ma off-keys?? I know most of you are still traumatized coz of that ka incident… don’t worry I got you covered n ready to help,” he said.
Marua responded and claimed that Willy Paul was hating because her debut song hit 1 million views in 3 days.
This escalated into a full-blown beef, with Willy Paul releasing a diss track in which he claimed to have had sexual relations with Marua. Inexplicably, Willy Paul later pulled down the song.
Now, Diana B has dropped a bombshell, detailing a painful and traumatic encounter with Willy Paul.
In a video on her YouTube channel, Diana B said Willy Paul tried to rape her.
“It is about time I come out and speak my truth. I’m still in shock and disbelief that someone would go to any extent to clout chase using my name you drag me into your nonsense to get people to watch you and listen to your music. You are going to the extent of saying that you slept with me? Why are you lying to the public? You know what you did. Why are you lying?” Marua posed.
She went on: “Your album is not doing well. Your music career is sinking. Then out of the blues you come and drag my name? I have been quiet for a while now but I’m going to release it today.”
Diana said her encounter with ‘Bwana Mkunaji’ happened when she used to live in Syokimau.
“A few years ago, Willy Paul pursued me for quite a while, I used to live at Greatwall Apartments, Syokimau.
“I was at the movie shop, Willy paul came in he was all touchy, he tells me, ‘Let’s go to your place we talk’. I told him, ‘I cannot allow you to come to my place because I don’t know you’. He was arrogant. Then he said we can talk in the car. I agreed to avoid the drama. I got in the car. He locked the car and drove off,” Marua narrated.
Diana B explained why she has finally decided to speak out, noting that it took her three years to tell Bahati about the attempted rape.
“It has taken me so long to even share this story with my own husband. It took me 3 years before I opened up to Bahati about what I went through. I have been pushed to talk about this. So many women have come out to talk about this but their voices have not been heard. I will stand for my truth. I have a voice,” she stated.
Marua went on to narrate what happened in Willy Paul’s car, “He put on loud music. I was like what are you doing where are we going. He was speeding. I opted to be cool.”
She added; “We got to some apartments after Gateway mall and he tells me we go to his place. I refused and told him to return me home. He got angry and got on top of me.”
Marua broke down in tears as memories of the sexual assault came flooding back.
“I can feel the shivers on my body now remembering this. He started pulling my skirt up and tore my skirt and top. I kept telling him to get off me I started screaming and he choked me to stop me from screaming. Eventually, in the process of screaming he panicked and let me go, I took that chance and ran away,” Marua said.
She then hailed a bodaboda and returned home.
Reached for comment, Willy Paul said he would respond to the allegations at Kiss FM on Friday.
